What a week in Hoboken!

Yikes! So many stories this week, it was hard to choose the top entries for the Hoboken411 Week in Review – so a nice “super-sized” entry for this week!

So what made the most noteworthy entries for the week ending Sunday, October 25th, 2009?

A mile square town can make your head spin!

  • PSYCHOS!
    By far the most important story of the week was news of the Westboro Baptists coming to town to ruffle feathers!
  • LOCALS!
    How attractive will Hoboken’s new cinema be for out-of-towners, when they already have their own theaters?
  • HARASSED!
    One Hoboken resident feels he’s being unfairly (and unnecessarily) targeted by local cops.
  • OH BOY, POLITICS…
    Here’s a summary of some of the more noteworthy political items of the week…

  • NIXED!
    The ridiculous plan to build yet more unnecessary high-rise waterfront towers was withdrawn by the developer after they saw the community disapproval here on Hoboken411!
  • UNNECSSARY?
    Does Hoboken benefit in any way, shape or form by having crude pictures of bicycles on the pavement?
  • NEEDY!
    Resurrected a post from the summer about things Hoboken desperately needs. Ideas keep coming – is anyone paying attention?
  • INAPPROPRIATE??
    One Hoboken411 reader claims they were nearly run down by a speeding HPD car – should they issue a complaint?
  • DESERVED?
    I may have been harsh saying that people that leave valuables in plain sight “deserve” what they get. This leads to conversation with widely varying opinions…
  • RIPOFF!
    Several readers feel one dentist in Hoboken is just taking advantage of patients for greed and monetary gain.
  • SCAM-A-TIST!
    A couple Hobokenites were caught up in a prescription pill scam that bilked Medicaid out of millions.
  • LAZY?
    Hoboken411 believes many residents are stuck in their “neck of the woods” and rarely explore town. Are you one of them?
  • HMMMM…
    Another mysterious smell invades the NYC tri-state area. No word on what the heck it was.
  • BLINDING?
    I happen to love the new high-tech street lamps being installed throughout Hoboken – some residents feel they may be TOO bright!
  • TAXI!
    The Hoboken taxi rules are clear, yet most yellow cab drivers abuse them. How do you feel about that crap?

Other Updates

  • NOW OPEN: Yep – Clearview Cinemas finally opened, and now Hoboken is home to a new theater.
  • REVIEWED: New Portuguese BBQ restaurant Piri Piri is reviewed by Hoboken411…
  • RE-LOCATED: Downtown interior design store moves uptown to 14th and Shipyard.
